Meanwhile, the mother of his child, Kelly Khumalo, is struggling to clear two debts that are threatening to further soil her precarious public image.

Sunday World has gathered that Khumalo's debt crisis dates back two years.

Documents seen by Sunday World reveal that Khumalo owes an insurance company more than R11000 for having rammed another motorist with her massive Hummer.

This on top of the medical bills involving the birth of her son, which the artist hasn't settled.

With regard to the car accident, the claim documents show that Khumalo reversed her imposing SUV into a tiny Fiat Palio and left it with damage of more than R11000.

The letter from MiWay, dated November 1 2010, reads in part: "We are holding you liable for the damage to our client's vehicle, since you failed to keep a proper lookout and reversed into our client's vehicle.

"As a result of the above- mentioned incident, damages to the amount of R11566,66 were suffered.

"Your urgent settlement advice is awaited within seven days from date herewith, failing which we will have no alternative but to proceed with legal action against you, costs for which we will not hesitate to hold you liable for."

The initial medical bill was just over R2000 but that amount has spiked to more than R6000 as the doctors have enlisted the services of lawyers to get their dough.

According to an itemised bill from Dr Mike Greeff and Associates, Khumalo owes them for the post-natal treatment of her baby.

The paediatrician's seven claims are for routine child health examination and immunisation in May 2010.

After failing to get joy from Khumalo, the medico referred the matter to Wynand du Plessis Attorneys, who slapped Khumalo with a letter of demand.

Kelly's manager Sarah Setlaelo says: "With regard to the story, it's no-one's business.

"It's a private matter that is not for public consumption.

"Therefore I won't comment and I'll advise Kelly to do the same."
